Why Tapestry?

Ranch Hand

I have learned Struts 1.2 and Struts2 + Tiles in the past.
I am currently working on Spring Webflow. What is the most compelling reason for which I should learn a new framework. Is it easy to learn? Is it worthwhile?

After my experience with Spring I hardly feel any need to learn any other thing? Spring provides everything(as far as I experienced)

What about my resume? If it adds value to the resume and the requirement in the market is high probably I can give it a shot

Well, if you are used to action-based frameworks, then to easily grasp Tapestry you might need to free you head from all that extra stuff you had to learn. Many experienced Java web developers keep thinking that all the frameworks should be Struts-like, but Tapestry is quite different and, in fact, much simpler for the developer.

The benefit of learning it is that you will write much less boilerplate code, almost no configuration files, and your productivity will go up quite sharply.

The jobs market isn't really good for Tapestry, but if you are in the UK then the company I am working for is actively looking for Tapestry developers, and I know at least another company doing the same.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
